  1. Is this what you're talking about? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Oak-Manufacturing-gumball-machine-riser-plate/122304102066?_trksid=p2385738.c100677.m4598&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908110712%26meid%3D53729bbdb3e940f087651bfe2e097819%26pid%3D100677%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D13%26sd%3D222365389937
  2. Thanks very much for the reply. Would you mind describing this riser you mentioned and tell me where to get one? BTW, what is this machine set up for now? Thanks
  3. And while we're at it, she offered me this for $75. I didn't know what it was and I thought that was too much so I turned her down. Anyone identify it? Thanks
  4. So I'm at my new charity, St Vincent de Paul. My wife volunteers there and my parish runs it so it's on the up and up. Anyway, they have a used Oak single with no lock that they sell me for $25. I think I ordered the right lock on ebay. So what kind of wheel is this? I'm new to this vending thing, only have 7 machines so far, but this wheel is obviously not for my 850 count gumballs. Thanks. https://www.flickr.com/gp/149582526@N03/23wi06 https://www.flickr.com/gp/149582526@N03/25ocz1 https://www.flickr.com/gp/149582526@N03/5v52Pi

  6. Are these built well? Anyone have a review? Thanks

  8. Got a screaming deal on one of these and permission from a bowling alley owner to place it. Anyone have any experience with this machines? Are the reliable? Thanks
  9. Just the keys. They have a have 2 cam style locks on the top lid with standard keys. The money door on the back is a cam lock as well, but with a hollow tubular key (not sure if that's the technical term). I read on here that you can go to the hardware store and buy replacement cam locks that are keyed alike. I may see if I can remove the old locks and do this. If so it would be cheaper. May stop at a lock smith and show him and get his opinion. Want something cheap and easy. There are some solutions online but most involve buying new doors etc and to me seems a bit expensive for a used Vendstar. Thank you
  10. Just picked up a good, used Vendstar (my first) for $25. It doesn't have keys. What is my easiest and most economical solution? I see a myriad of replacement keys offered on ebay, but how many do I need, and how do I know which ones? Thank you
  11. I'm sorry wrong forum. My bad.

  13. Thanks for all the advice. I got it adjusted and placed it yesterday. We'll see how it goes. thanks again
  14. To AMD, I read on here somewhere about a guy with Vendesigns that sets the canisters in a milk crate while servicing. I'm going to try that. Thanks
  15. Well that answers my next question about gumballs. What about the smaller ones? Are they 1040 count? I was concerned about the candy amount. Especially being placed in a new location that has unknown performance. I think maybe I'll fill it about 2/3. I'm going Mike and Ike, Skittles, Runtz, and PMM's. Thatsthing wide open is only distributing and average of 6 PMM's. That's not quite enough right? I was thinking can I just pull that candy adjustment shim out completely and leave it out? Maybe that would bump the average up enough. Thank you
